He’s my King too. Do you know Him?

John 11:25-25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

Did you hear the Good News? Jesus has risen as He said! I pray that you’ll take a moment no matter what time of the year it is you come upon this message, and listen to this and allow the love, power and majesty of the Lord to touch your heart. There’s truly no one like Him!

I know what Jesus has meant to my own life personally and I’m thankful that He is everything and more of what is said by Dr. Lockridge below. Get ready to worship the King!!!
